Age of Empires 4 releases tomorrow, so here are some fun facts about the RTS seriesOctober 27, 2021
If you’ve been reading the Age of Empires IV reviews this week, including ours, you might be quietly optimistic about the next instalment in one of RTS games’ most iconic series. There’s not much to do now but wait for the game to unlock in your region – you can check our handy Age of Empires IV release times rundown if you’ve forgotten.
While you wait, you could also read up on some funky facts about the Age of Empires series as a whole. Since October 1, Age of Empires community member FloosWorld has been posting one piece of trivia about the strategy games on Twitter each day. They range from well-known things like the Age of Empires II anniversary, to anecdotes about a South Korean release, and how one of the series’ original lead designers went on to create Empire Earth.
While FloosWorld isn’t a developer or officially associated with Microsoft, it seems they’ve been doing their homework as most of the fun facts they’ve shared do indeed seem to be, well, fun facts. We get a peek at examples such as the South Korean boxed edition of AOE2 with fact 19, and since last week the trivia drops have been about Age of Empires IV and definitely check out.
